Come on Melvin, it's not really that bad. I've been there a time or two and didn't have any problems with the ATVs. You just have to pay attention and it's pretty clear sailing.

lbl turkey bay
too many four wheelers, utv and moto x bikes. They fly around with no respect to anyone else. never know when one will cross your path WFO. Other than that it is very enjoyable and senic.

|HannibleMP||Got a couple of Things to start the New Year off.. For starters, got a CB & fuel door for Christmas.. Yet to be installed. Also added a little bling* Went to Turkey Bay, KY for a 1-1-13 ride. Was a bit sloshy, but fun.However, I happened to create a new project while there.. Busted a bushwacker flare and cracked 2 others. I think I'm going to chop the lip off and turn them into flats(ish). I'll also need to find a plastic welder for cracks. Followed by a sanding and Bedlining to finish it up..|

|JeepNmurray||The Rangers over there can be Butts from time to time & they screwed up some good riding when they took it over. I'm just now getting back in to jeeping but the most fun thing to do in LBL. Is ride the old roads not usable by regular vehicle. Purchase a camping permit & camp where ya want to, just hide the beer in a red solo cup.|

We've also had forest rangers come into our campsite and force us to remove my 3 year old son's PowerWheels toy truck from behind the tent, because it was "beyond the boundary for motorized vehicles". I had it behind the tent to keep it out of sight so nobody would steal it in the middle of the night, and those a$$clowns made me put it out in plain view. A plastic toy electric truck!
The place is a total joke since USFS got all high-n-mighty around there. 10 years ago you'd have HUGE crowds, soldiers from Fort Campbell, all kinds of rigs and spectators, gatherings at the area known as the "Gator Pit", just a real fun time. Now you have to watch your every move so you don't get slapped on the wrist by Johnny Law.
It's a shame, because the scenery in the forest is different than all the other places in Kentucky you can go to and ride legally. Sigh.....

|HannibleMP||For those of us who unfortunately had to work today, There are a few of us making a trip out to Turkey Bay, and surrounding LBL trails on Sept 8.|

As far as trails and area, they have around 120 miles of trails and over 2200 acres in the park. Something for everybody!

I agree with you that in the early 2000s, there were a lot of people there, but it was wide open riding, anywhere and everywhere and that caused a lot of damage to the park and alot of erosion problems. What TVA did was to begin to close the bad areas of riding and try to stop the rutting. With that being done, they are now opening areas that have been repaired and are reworking others to keep control. With what the USFS is doing there with erosion control, it has helped temper the arguments about closing parks because of bad rutting problems. It really didn't change any at all when USFS took over from TVA except they had more money to improve the system and check more vehicles within the park boundries.
You also have to remember just about the time USFS took over, the economy took a turn for the worse with gas prices rising, causing less people to go places.

|HannibleMP||Anyone up for going to Turkey Bay on The weekend of Sept 8, '12?|

|DJ_B1R||Always wanted to go there when I Had my Honda 250R 4 wheeler (sold it last week) Some friends and I have mentioned a fishing trip...now I have the Jeep. Looks like I need to make a trip happen. Heard nothing but good things on Turkey bay/Land between the lakes.|

|WXman||Turkey Bay is the bomb. Been going there since 2003. In the early 2000s, it was epic. Crowds there every weekend. USFS rules have since turned the place into a boring park...but the scenery is still worth the drive.|
